Hello all, not enough hours in the day to read through all the informative posts! Just bought our first TT, 1994 Dutchmen Classic 30 foot bunkhouse. Just finished winterizing with the help of the posts here.

Bought the TT from private party so I basically am learning all the workings by myself. Will need to find some recommendations for leveling jacks, TV, potable hose as the TT didn't come with them.

Thanks to all who contribute!

-can't help there, look at what's on other trailers and at Camping Worlds website

TV - The LCD flat screens are getting reasonable now - I bought one earlier this year.  Measure the place you're going to put it, that your measurements & tape measure to Circuit City

, potable hose - white drinking water hose from WalMart.  Get two 25'ers.  While you're there get a pressure regulator, a "Y" with cutoffs and a couple of the end cutoffs.  I also bought something similar to this.

Might have to go to Camping World for that.  Pick up one of these.

Need more help spending $?

Will need to find some recommendations for leveling jacks, ...

Jacks come in two general flavors:  leveling and stabilizing.  You can use leveling jacks ONLY if your frame can handle them.  A good clue is whether your manfacturer offered them as an option on your particular model.  Of course your hitch jack is does double duty as a leveling jack and handles all the leveling fore and aft.  Side to side leveling is usually don't with wood or plasic blocks under the low side wheels.  To see an example of the plastic blocks, click HERE.  I find that two 10-packs are sufficient to raise a double axle trailer 3" on one side.  They are compact, light, and simple to use.
